Default Re: Homecoming Mums?

I'm from MO and we did it in high school for football and basketball Homecomings. I was a cheerleader and ours were real mums with a royal blue M in the center. The pep club sold them as a fundraiser.

Today, the high schools around here don't do that anymore. Corsages especially wrist ones are all the rage for Homecoming and Prom. Our exchange students both had beautiful wrist corsages! My kids are still younger, but we may have to bring back the tradition! LOL

I have family members in IL and they do not do Homecoming. They have Coronation and wow!!!! The dresses of the girls on the Court look like wedding dresses and cost that much too! The girls have to curtsy all the way down to the floor and it's a major deal with tickets being sold to see it! No mums there--only roses!
